EIGHT COW HAIKUS

 

 

A cow knows nothing
about butter, cheese, or cream.
She just makes the milk.

 

Cows do not travel
to Cancun or Las Vegas.
Cows stay close to home.

 

Every cow comes wrapped
in cowhide, but that does not
serve to hide the cow.

 

The colors of cows
range from brown to black and white.
Purple ones are rare.

 

A cow looks stable,
but she can be tipped over
with just a light shove.

 

Male cows are called bulls.
Female cows are just called cows.
And then there are steers.

 

Most cows are docile,
but when a cow is provoked,
she knows no mercy.

 

Cows are a largely
neglected theme for haikus.
Itís hard to see why.
